Sick of smelly kitchen towels? The Dish Pad is minimal, collapsible, and encased in woven silicone. Best of all, this countertop drying mat helps prevent mildew.
I have been following Dorai products for a while now, and finally bought the Dorai dishpad for my new home to replace my microfiber dishpad. I was so excited to receive it since it looks beautiful and matches my quartzite countertops. However, about a week after using it, I have not been impressed. I use my dishwasher for most of my dishes, but the pad is still not big enough to hold my non-handwashable items. The stone is great at evaporating the water, but I found that most of the water from my dishes falls on the silicone covering which takes forever to dry and ends up soaking my countertops. The MOST disappointing thing about the Dorai dishpad is that it stains very easily! I have been very careful to make sure there are no dark liquids or stains on my dishes before I put them on the pad. There is a large dark stain that formed on my pad, and I have tried sanding the stone, cleaning with bleach/peroxide, and it still hasn’t come off. Very upsetting as it is very noticeable and defeats the purposes of having a “nice” looking dish pad out on your counter. Unfortunately I might switch back to microfiber pads… but really sad that this didn’t work out for me.
Staining isn’t attractive
It’s great and the customer service is outstanding!
I have been trying to cut down on how often I run the dishwasher for environmental reasons, but I also just had a baby and find myself handwashing bottles often. This product is a great addition to my kitchen -- the stone dries quickly, there is no mildew or need to wash daily, and it looks neat and upscale. I hope they come out with a few other colors as I would love one in a white, beige or terracotta-like color. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend!
And now I want a sink caddy and a dish pad and the sink caddy is not in stock anymore :( without which there is no discount :(
But the product is amazing! Love it!
